Crime Lab Internships

Internship Opportunities

Internships are open to high school, college, or post graduate students seeking skills for a new career.  The goal of our internship program is to provide mutual benefit for the intern and our lab through original experiments, secondary research projects and/or general laboratory tasks.  With this in mind, the weekly time commitment to the internship is flexible and will be set between the intern and their laboratory mentor.
